Mandy Moore's Hot Look

This girl looks fierce!
I love how Mandy rocks the neon green with the detail studded bust. So hot.

It's Raining Chicness

Boo and hiss. It has been raining in the way it only can at 95 degrees in Chicago the past two afternoons. I am so sick of wearing my ratty old North Face. I want this hot cropped jacket from Phillip Lim.

Fabu Designer: Geren Ford

I have really fallen for the Spring 07 Geren Ford line. The relaxed and tailored pieces are really conducive for work to play gear. You can find some summer pieces at

Eye Love a Beauty Gift

I can never resist a beauty gift offering. In fact, I am often looking for any extra incentive to buy more beauty goodies. I am totally going to take advantage of this Neiman Marcus Special! I am definitely in need of some extra eye care as I have been working long hours lately and possibly going out on the town a bit much. I love looking bright eyed and busy tailed so to speak so I think some eye TLC is in order.
Laura Mercier
Night Nutrition Renewal Eye Creme

I love Laura Mercier beauty products. They always smell fresh and are really hydrating

Shu Umera
Eyelash Curler Renovation

I just broke my E.L.F. curler that I bought for $1 and I think it's time for an upgrade. Professional Make Up Artists and Celebs (as well as my girls) swear by this one.

Reviving Concealer/Eye/Tint

My revlon concealer is just not cutting through the dark circles anymore. A little Prada never hurt anyone.

Half A Million Dollar Closet

After reading the story about Victoria Beckham's closet on Perez Hilton, I felt compelled to post to my lovely readers. According to In Touch, the lovely fashionista has designed a closet worth half a million dollars for her new L.A. home.

Now you may ask what could possibly make a closet worth $500k? Well apparently, the closet features a leather floor, Baccarat crystal chandelier, $80,000 Andy Warhol shoe print, a computer that tracks when she wears items of clothing and a camera to give her a 360-degree ‘cat scan’ of her outfit before she steps out.

I can think of many better uses of $500,000 myself as I am sure you all can too. But I cannot lie, aside from the excessiveness of this closet design, I secretly find it tres chic.

What do you think?

I'm It!

Obsession Couture tagged me and seeing as I have thoroughly enjoyed all the other bloggy responses I figured why not?

Rules: Post 7 Random facts about yourself, and tag 7 other people (that haven't already been tagged.)

    1. I love mayo. I ask for it on the side, not so there isn't too much on my sandwichs but so I can add extra. I put it on fries, chips, and anything else possible.
    2. I am terrified of Wax Museums. I cried on a trip to Madame Tussauds in 5th grade and then again last year.
    3. I have always wanted a Sharpei. I am often accused of loving any kind of dog that is so ugly it is cute.
    4. I have a guilty pleasure of books on tape. I almost like going on road trips so I can listen to some silly crime novel on the way.
    5. My favorite shoes are my ratty white converse lo-tops, but I tell everyone my favorite pair are my 5 inch tan Gucci sandals. Oops.
    6. I basically will watch any MTV reality TV Show...ranging from Date My Mom to Rob & Big. It is embarassing for us all, I know.
    7. If I could have dinner with anyone alive or dead, it would be Maya Angelou. Her words inspired me to be a writer and a strong woman.

So there, some random insight into me. I will go ahead and tag: Style Antidote, Koko Stiletto, Luxe Living, Fashionably Challenged, and The Fashion Economist

iPhone Mania Begins...

I can't help but be swayed by the on slaught of cool commercials that Apple has been running for the iPhone as we are at 3 days to its release. Sure it is a fabu looking gadget that can email, surf the web, iPod, and call your nearest and dearest but aside from the fact that I despise Cingular, or now AT&T, I still do not think I would be able to pony up the hefty asking price for a phone I would surely lose or break.

Still despite my protesting, CNet's new gadget blog Crave has captured the slow starting iPhone mania at the Apple Store in NYC. Apparently there are already 6 eager folks camped out and ready for 3 days of heat, boredom, and potential thunderstorms. Click here to read more.

Glammy Grunge: My Kind of Style

There has been a growing trend among the Hollywood starlets that I have dubbed Glammy Grunge. An attempt to look effortlessly bedworn while still glitzing yourself up with the latest duds, hair extensions, shoes, but most commonly Must Have bags. I think most people either love this look or hate it. I personally am a big fan. I often find myself doing the same thing on a Saturday morning trip to Michigan Ave. I'll throw on some leggings and an oversized tunic but carry my LV Speedy as well to give my weekend style a little bit more of an edge. There are so many different ways to exhibit the Glammy Grunge Look:

Mischa dons her keds with a hot designer dress during a press promotion of the company.

Simple black leggings and an oversized mens undershirt are dressed up with Nicole's designer bag and kicks.

Another LV Speedy is used by Hduff to fluff up her cut offs and goofy boots.
What do you think about Glammy Grunge?

Fabu vs. Faboo--Christina Aguilera Edition

I realize it takes some work to get to the hotness CA exhibits on her press tour. But is it really necessary to rock curlers and a hairnet in public?

Haute Couture Me!

I know I have majorly blog sucked the past few days. See I am swamped at work with two campaigns launching this week and very little I have not been able to take my usual blogging breaks. I am working on two pieces one on celeb fashion labels and another on grungey chic celeb looks, which I hope to have finished by Friday. Other than that I will do my best to update tomorrow and Thursday but it may be a little bit slower than usual. Thanks dudettes!

Guy Style: David Beckham

If only American men could have a small percentage of the style that David Beckham has we would all be in trouble. Maybe it will rub off after his and Posh's move to this side of the pond.

A Skinny Jean Trifecta

I am still one devoted to skinny jeans, despite the fashion trends best efforts to move me towards those of a wide leg style. Leave it to me to buy 3 of the exact same style in one shopping spree. H&M Squin Style are just $39.90 and after trying on the dark wash I could not resist. I have been searching for a white skinny pair for the past few weeks so these were a must have. And the grey pair are so soft I just could not say no.

Inspired: Belle and Boo

Another fabulous artist I have happened upon in my everlasting Etsy search is Belle and Boo. This fabu artist from Manchester creates prints from original illustrations that are digitally colored. The result is a series of fanciful and funny screen prints on 100% cotton archival paper that the artist will ship to you matted and framed.

Fabu vs. Faboo: Fancy Preggers Looks of the Day

Who am I to judge a pregnant lady as I have never been preggers myself. Yet after seeing an onslaught of celeb babies on board, I have to say that it is possible to look effortlessly chic no matter how big you are. Naomi Watts has looked tres fabu throughout her entire pregnancy even as she neared the end. Drea di Mateo on the other hand does not embrace her bump rather covers it up with a tentlike mu-mu. Come on girl.

Sweet Relief: Polyvore Chic

I was so scarred by the last posting (ahem ahem Britney) that I felt the need to put together a dream outfit that would hopefully heal my eye sight of any permanent scarring. Say it with me...Miu Miu, Bottega, Mint, and Mulberry. Ah, sweet relief.
